Good discernment means asking good questions. So, it’s no surprise that more than a few questions go into the formation of a Jesuit priest. These are men who have to wrestle with what it means to be a member of a religious order, what it means to enter into community and what it means to be a priest in the modern age.

Questions are important. They help us better understand God at work in our lives and our unique vocations. And so, in preparation for and celebration of the ordination of Jesuits to the priesthood across the United States and Canada during the month of June, we sat down with a couple of these men — and we asked them questions.

Join us for this limited audio series, “Pathway to Priesthood.” Listen to these Jesuits’ reflections on vocation — and allow their questions to spark some of your own. Learn more about the individual men being ordained in 2024 by checking out our annual ordination feature.
